Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum - Cambodia
Phnom Penh\'s Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum is the most grim and most profound museum experience in Asia. Not only does it movingly depict the horrors of the Khmer Rouge\'s most feared death camp, in a remarkable collection upstairs, it introduces the men who were once the Khmer Rouge.
The Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum is a museum in Phnom Penh. The site is a former high school which was used as the notorious Security Prison 21 (S-21) by the Khmer Rouge communist regime from its rise to power in 1975 to its fall in 1979. Tuol Sleng means "Hill of the Poisonous Trees" or "Strychnine Hill". In 1979, the prison was uncovered by the invading Vietnamese army. In 1980, the prison was reopened by the government of the People's Republic of Kampuchea as a historical museum memorializing the actions of the Khmer Rouge regime. The museum is open to the public, and receives an average of 500 visitors every day.
